The UK City of Culture 2013, Derry-Londonderry, is back in the race a second time with team entry Derry~Londonderry~Doire. The 70-foot yacht and 53 strong racing team will help promote the city’s international trade, tourism and business development around the globe.

Winners of the first UK City of Culture 2013 and the only complete walled city in Ireland, it is experiencing a renaissance in culture, business, tourism and investment.

Almost £100 million has been invested in city infrastructure, creating new spaces and improving access and experiences for local and visitors. The city is poised for continued economic growth with initiatives planned for creative economies to take advantage of recent investment in becoming a super-connected city and its status as the first city in Ireland to achieve 100 per cent broadband enabled.

The city’s tourism sector is also experiencing a renewed energy with record figures recorded in May and June 2013 for accommodation bookings and visitor figures.

Add to this a growing confidence and civic pride and Derry-Londonderry believes there is no better moment than now to share its new story with the world. Boasting Ireland’s oldest walls and youngest people, Derry- Londonderry has an attitude to life that sets it apart. For a city bubbling with creativity, energy and fun, it is continuing at a cracking pace on its remarkable transformation journey. With a cascading programme of investment, innovation and world-class events over the next few years, the city is already becoming famous for pushing back the boundaries of the creative industries and providing a world-class visitor experience.

Skipper Sean McCarter is quietly confident. He has a real connection and enthusiasm for the city and region and this will help build a great team spirit and encourage everyone to be part of this incredible journey. 

For the city, the momentum achieved as being the inaugural UK City of Culture 2013 must be sustained as they invite the world to share the city’s new story.

The Clipper Race is exceptional as all twelve boats are identical which will make for extremely close racing.
